Barack Obama, Traitor to his Country
On August 2, 2011, ITAR-TASS published an interview between its CEO Mikhail Gusman, appointed to his job by Russian dictator Vladimir Putin because ITAR-TASS is the Kremlin’s official newswire mouthpiece, and U.S. President Barack Obama.
In it, Obama stated:
I think it’s important for us to look back over the last two years and see the enormous progress we’ve made. I started talking about reset when I was still a candidate for President, and immediately reached out to President Medvedev as soon as I was elected. And we have been I think extraordinarily successful partners in moving towards reset.
Reading this statement, there is only one conclusion that a thoughtful, well-informed Russia watcher can come to: Obama is a liar and a traitor to his country who must be immediately impeached and removed from office.
Obama’s outrageous lie was book-ended, thank heavens, by two pieces of truly brilliant reporting from the Washington Times and its reporter Eli Lake.
First, on July 27th Lake published a heroic leak of a classified report by two anonymous U.S. “officials.” The report was published and discussed with members of Congress more than six months ago, and unequivocally concludes that Russian security forces were responsible for bombing the U.S. Embassy in September 2010, well after Medvedev had been “elected” president. Is that what Obama was referring to when he mention he and Medevedev were “extraordinarily successful partners”? If so, Obama should spend the rest of his life in prison.
Then, on August 4th, Lake published an broader account of the brutal acts of harassment and intimidation being visited upon U.S. diplomats in Russia. The report concludes that during the Obama administration Russia has stepped up such barbaric behavior and increasingly targeted human rights officials. It makes it clear that U.S. intelligence officials believe the September bombing in Georgia was part and parcel of this campaign of terror, and that the Obama administration has been hiding the facts from the American people in order to protect its propaganda campaign regarding the success of the “reset” policy that Obama tried to hype when speaking to ITAR-TASS.
Putin’s KGB operatives have falsely accused an American diplomat of child rape. They have arranged that U.S. foreign service officers “have come home to find jewelry rearranged, cigarette butts stubbed out on the kitchen table, defecations in the bathroom, and break-ins with nothing of value stolen” and that “visiting congressional staff on official delegations have complained of having their hotel rooms broken into and seeing their things rearranged.” And they have even gone so far as to use explosive devices that could have killed Americans and their families abroad.
Obama has not only stood silent in the face of these outrageous attacks on his own people, has not merely aggressively sought to cover them up, but he has lied to the American people and the world, claiming that he has made huge progress in transforming relations with Russia on friendly terms. In our last issue, we published a lengthy scholarly analysis showing how Obama has utterly abandoned American interests in regard to Russia and is placing American national security in direct jeopardy.
Obama was recently faced with a stark choice to make. The U.S. Senate passed a resolution condemning Russian aggression in Georgia and demanding that Russia remove its military occupation forces from Abkhazia and Ossetia. Meanwhile, Russia’s so-called “president” Dima Medvedev issued a proclamation blaming the United States for the conflict. Who does Obama agree with, the U.S. Senate or the Russian president?
From all appearances, Obama will choose the Russians. He will chose his pal Medvedev, with whom he happily munched cheeseburgers and whom he praised on Russian state-sponsored TV, rather than the U.S. Senate even though his own party has a majority in that body.
This is what America now has for “leadership.” A coward and a traitor. For the first time in U.S. history, under his rule, America’s credit rating has been downgraded. Debt is rising, unemployment is not falling, and American values are under siege in Russia without anything like a proper defense.
Obama must go.
